7th European Algae Industry Summit

Date: 26th April 2017 - 27th April 2017 Location: Nice - France

ACI’s 7th Annual European Algae Industry Summit (formerly known as “European Algae Biomass Conference”) will take place on 26th & 27th April 2017 in Nice, France.  The event will once again bring together senior executives from industry and academia to discuss the latest commercial and technical developments, challenges and research breakthroughs throughout the entire algae value chain.

Exclusive Site Visit: Camporosso Archimede Ricerche facility (APG group)

A day prior the conference, a limited number of summit delegates will have a unique opportunity to join an exclusive site visit to the Camporosso Archimede Ricerche facility (APG group) (Ligurian Riviera, Italy).

Camporosso site is a fully integrated microalgae, energy and biorefinery plant, designed and developed to be an advanced sustainable production unit, energetically independent. Site planning criterium was to develop different technologies to obtain a flexible system suitable for the cultivation of several strains of microalgae maintaining sustainable concept.

There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated to the conference delegates on first come first served basis. Therefore, we would strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Since 1983 Plastica Alfa develops innovative polymer based products for water management and  under the constant guidance of its CEO Mario Pace, has succeeded in entering into the worlwide market. In the last twenty years the production department has always been improving lines production and new products for different fields of water management application: irrigation, hydraulics, thermo-hydraulics and oil&gas. In the last five years the attention has focused also in the production of energy from renewable sources and environmental protection after acquisition of  a specific know-how on thermochemical conversion of biomass and Carbon Capture & Conversion.

R&D Department develops constantly innovative products and systems and specific  biochemical activities have been  focused on CO2 conversion using close photobioreactors (PBRs). Plastica Alfa is involved into an industrial programme to develop advanced transparent PBRs produced with polymeric based materials. Advanced  polymeric matrices and UV additive formulation have been studied to increase  the photoxidation resistance during the exposure to the sunlight, and we are working to reduce the fouling process on the internal surface of the photobioreactors. The final objective of the project is developing a configuration plant of large scale microalgae growing system integrated with different  industrial sites  to reduce the microalgae production cost.

As technology provider Subitec enables its customers the efficient and cost-saving cultivation of microalgae in both laboratory and industrial scale. The resulting algae biomass has a very wide range of applicability. Valuable substances can be gained from microalgae which could be applied in the pharma- and cosmetics industry. Moreover, the algae biomass is used for the production of dietary supplements and animal feed. The energetic utilization for the production of clean fuels, such as biodiesel, biogas and ethanol, is also possible on the basis of algae biomass.

Subitec supplies cultivation systems on the basis of three different sized FPA-reactors (6, 28 and 180 liter volumes). This makes the technology scalable and applicable in laboratories as well as in pilot and production plants. Subitec develops cultivation processes and delivers entire turn-key plants. Beyond that, Subitec is involved in numerous R&D projects for high value products, but also for the energetic utilization of algae biomass.
